Updating azureus fails [solved*]

I installed azureus but when I try to update it I get this error. 

Version 1.7 of plugin 'azupdater' failed to install - /usr/share/azureus/plugins/azupdater/azupdater_1.7.zip (Permission denied)

I tried doing the makepkg both as a normal user (w/ fakeroot) and as root.  I also tried pacman -A as root and using sudo... same results.  Permissions are set to root:root for this directory and I tried changing it to root:users but that also didn't help. 

I'm pretty much out of ideas..

On a related note, it seems that the restart Azureus button doesn't work.. it'll shut down but then fails to come back up.

Azureus works fine for me... updates & restarts fine. If I remember right I just downloaded it from their homepage and unpacked it into my home dir (it wasn't in the Arch repos then!).


Microsoft stole my computer, Linux gave it back.

Its trying to update a file in a directory that your user has no right for i think.
Try running azureus as ROOT and updating from the menu. That way should work.

Yeah - running it as root worked.  I wish there was a more elegant solution but -- hey, it worked..  Thanks!

Re: Updating azureus fails [solved*]

In future, use the PKGBUILD from the AUR rather than updating from within the application:
